    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Welcome to Grumpy Groupies!!! This group is open to every one. I hope that all my buddies will join and use it often. Sad or happy, NO discussion is taboo. I do ask that you use Trigger in the title when necessary. Hopefully we can have fun and also support those who are having a hard time. Muahs

    Hey honey, I have a hard time falling asleep and a hard time staying asleep as well. I take Lunesta which puts me to sleep pretty fast but doesnt keep me asleep. Ive noticed if I take Lorazepam (for anxiety) that not only relaxes me and puts me to sleep, but it keeps me asleep. Perhaps you can try that. Good luck. muahs
    When all else fails, go Bipolar all over their azzes!!

    thanks cookie. what is lorazepam? i go to the doctor tomorrow afternoon. before i switched doctors a few month ago, i was on 3 10mgs of valum a day. this doctor took it away. now my nervers are still bad and i dont sleep good. he keeps trying me on different things but they dont work. i have begged him for my valum back. i guess we will see what happen on wed. i will let you know what he says. thanks cookie. hugs to you!

    Lorazapam is a benzo in the same family as Valium. I have taken both and have found that Valium relaxed me more at your same dosage . The trade nam is Ativan which really didnt work for me. Hope that helps.
